Russian Sage 'Little Spire'
Perovskia atriplicifolia
Cut back plants almost to the ground in early spring before new growth begins.

Brunnera 'Silver Heart'
Heartleaf Alkanet

River Birch - 5 stem
Prune healthy trees during their dormant season, which is late summer to early winter. While the tree is young, leave lower branches on the trunk to nourish the tree and shade the trunk.

Hydrangea arborescens 'Annabelle'
Plants may die to the ground in harsh winters. Bloom occurs on new wood, so plants may be pruned back close to the ground in late winter to revitalize and to encourage vigorous stem growth and best form. If not pruned back, any weakened and/or damaged stems should be removed in early spring.

Hibiscus moscheutos 'Luna Red'
Cut back old hibiscus stems to about about 3 feet tall just before winter. The stems generally will die back over the cold season. Prune the old stems to the ground in spring to make way for new growth shoots

Hardy Pampas Grass

Cut back to 4-6" every winter for new fresh look
